But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,

forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,


From its founding on May 25, 1902 Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church has believed,
taught, and confessed that:

*   the Bible is the inspired Word of God, his unchanging and inerrant message to
men of all times

*   there is only one God.  He is three distinct and separate persons: Father,
Son and Holy Ghost;

*  God created man holy and without sin.  Man, of his own will, fell into sin
and so brought sin on the whole human race;

*  sin is in all men by nature and reveals itself in every transgression of God's
holy will by thought, word, or deed

*  the wages of sin is death and damnation in hell, an eternal agonizing separation
from the holy and righteous God

*   God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to
redeem the world

*  Jesus redeemed, that is, justified the whole human race with his holy precious
blood and with his innocent sufferings and death

*  this glorious fact is received by faith which is worked in the heart by the Holy
Spirit through the Word, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper

*  by faith alone in the atoning work of Christ we are heirs of the glories of
heaven.  While yet on earth we want to show our love for him who first
loved us

* at our death we shall inherit the full glories of everlasting life with Christ
in heaven, where there shall be no pain or sorrow, and all tears shall be wiped
from our eyes
